This old story packs a punch
Lloyd Nolan was a verteran character actor with great popularity. He exudes a certain toe to toe action in his scenes. This program certainly had no happy ending except for the bank and an unnamed heir. In other words, this program didn't have to have the traditional rescue of the imperiled victim. Mrs Seaton scares me.
